Why have you selected Dursley, Nailsworth, Stratford Park and Wotton-under-Edge for the introduction of charges?
Parking in these locations have been monitored and identified as operating close or above industry defined occupancy limits. This impacts users behaviour and discourages visits to these locations. Therefore, to ensure that the situation doesn’t get any worse we are seeking to act now. Introducing charges will increase the turnover of spaces, allowing visitors to plan journeys with certainty. Parking in other locations is, on a whole, freely accessible and therefore there is no need to further regulate the parking restrictions at this time. Obviously this could change in the future.
